Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' songs Product Information
Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' album for sale by Jan & Dean was released May 29, 2012 on the EMI Latin label. Jan & Dean's first Liberty album is overall slightly more successful than its successor and holds up very nicely -- as rock & roll, it's not in a league with, say, Elvis Presley's best music of the period, or a match for the Beach Boys' albums for musical depth, but it established the duo as the latter band's more lighthearted, fun-oriented rivals/colleagues. Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' CD music Beyond the title tune (which was a modest hit), Jan & Dean turn in solid, rocking versions of the latter group's "Surfin'" and "Surfin' Safari," have delightfully mindless fun on numbers like "Let's Turkey Trot," and show their appreciation of their East Coast rivals the Four Seasons with an exuberant version of "Walk Like a Man," while their rendition of "Rhythm of the Rain" has a low-key charm that wasn't usually associated with this duo (and comes off very well). Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' buy CD music The usual backup musicians, including Hal Blaine on drums and Glen Campbell, Tommy Tedesco, and Billy Strange on guitar, keep everything tight and seamless in the backup department, giving Jan & Dean ample opportunity for vocal acrobatics and comic antics on numbers like "Mr. Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' songs Bass Man." The duo also turns in a respectable version of the Rooftop Singers/Gus Cannon hit "Walk Right In," with an anonymous female singer added to the vocals, which doesn't add anything special to their catalog (though it does anticipate the Folk 'n Roll album by three years), but balancing that is a delightful cover of Lou Christie's "The Gypsy Cried" and a good try at turning the Victor Young pop standard "My Foolish Heart" into a "Blue Moon"-type doo wop hit. Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' CD music contains a single disc. ...See Full Description
